Exporting Personal Effects & Cargo From Bali to Denmark

Understanding the rules:
Personal belongings may be imported duty-and VAT-free, If: the owner has resided in a country outside the EU for a continuous period of at least 12 months and has owned and used the property is at least 6 months before moving to Denmark.
Personal belongings must be imported within 12 months after moving to Denmark and earliest 6 months before.
The owner must prove to have lived outside the EU.
The same rules also apply to private motor vehicles. Evidence must be given by a registration certificate.
The personal belongings cannot be sold, mortgaged or leased in the first 12 months after importation. if there are new things among the belongings the owner must pay duty and VAT on those.
The shipment may not contain tobacco, perfumes, alcohol or other articles that are either restricted on high taxed.

The short version: Away more than 12 months and stuff must be used and older than six months.

Best way to enforce this is to prepare an itemized packing list, add a declaration that the items were acquired earlier than 6 months. a short statement of why you are moveing to Denmark.

Best is if to don’t ship – goods under 6 month old, as it will complicate the clearance scenario.

Advise to bring those items as luggage on their flight home, because then there is a duty free allowance of DKK 3250 (USD 580) per passengers for new items.

Pack the new goods and take them on the plan with you and send your old used clothing etc as Unaccompanied Baggage
